I am River Yamuna. I am writing my autobiography. Let’s take a look at my life.
I was born in India. I am the Daughter of the Sun God, name Surya, and I am the sister of Yama, the God of the Death although I also knew as Yami in Hindu Myth. I rise from the Yamunotri Glacier the height of its 6,387 meters on the southwest descends of Bnderpooch heights in the most upper region of the lower Himalayas in Uttarakhand.
I am the highest and second largest river of the Ganges in India. I travel a total length of 1,376 km, and my drainage system is 366,223 sq.km. and the complete Ganges Basin of 40.2%. I integrate with the Ganges at Triveni Sangam, Allahabad, I am the only largest river in India which does not straight flow to the sea.
Several Crossing Ways
I cross many states in India like Haryana and Uttar Pradesh, moving by Uttarakhand and after Delhi. My largest tributary in Uttarakhand and my largest tributary have its own large basin, given by Sindh, and the Betwa, and Ken. I also do not pass across Himachal Pradesh, but I accept water from Himachal Pradesh through its tributary the Tons River.
Most significantly I am making the largest fertile alluvial, Dhoab state between itself and the Ganges in the Indo Gangetic plain. It’s my Pleasure that approximately 57 million people depend on me. With an annual flow of about 10,000 cbm and usage of 4,400 cubic billion meters. I am really happy that I have accounted for more than 70 percent of Delhi’s water supplies. Specified the Ganges, I am the high honor in Hinduism and worshiped as the Goddess Yamuna.
I am Happy that I have two friends one is the Western Yamuna Canal and other Eastern Yamuna Canal. The Western Yamuna Canal flowing toward Haryana and the second Eastern Yamuna Canal towards Uttar Pradesh. I also have a sewage drain with biochemical oxygen demand. I am very happy because of the biochemical oxygen demand values worth from 14 to 28 mg/I and with high coliform content. Now I feel very happy that I am flowing with high strength.
